Nice images. Irene was closest with Alicky (both had allicted sons) and then with VMH.

I remembered reading something about an incident with the grave of little Henry in Hemmelmark mausoleum. Does anyone know something about this?

I remember reading it but don't know nowwhere  exactly. I think the little coffin was stolen and  but later was discovered. Is the mausoleum in Hemmelmark open to public?

From my knowledge it is not open to public but could book by prior appointment upon request.

Thanks. Hemmelmark would be an interesting place to visit if one is interested in the Hessian sisters. I think they used to gather there on holidays.

Russka Princess, did you visit the mausoleum? i wonder why his son Waldemar and wife were not moved to Hemmelmark. I think there should be enough space inside.

Waldemar lived in Germany and he and his wife are buried in Erbach. Pity he didn't have children. I think because he was hemophilic doesn't mean he couldn' have children. His great uncle, prince Alfred of Albany had two healthy children, even if his daughter Alice was a carrier.

Not really...Irene lost contact with Alfred once he decided to stay in Costa Rica...
